Vanuatu Project 2013

[It’s been a year since I’ve last blogged. I miss Posterous 😦 ]

Over the semester-break I was fortunate enough to once again travel to the beautiful country of Vanuatu and share the gospel with an awesome team. Primarily we spent much of our time training the local students who were already a part of the Student Life (Campus Crusade) movement (as they currently operate without any full-time staff) but we also got to do evangelism on Emalus campus, the University of the South Pacific’s Law faculty.

Here’s a really short video of some of the things the team got up to.

I wanna be more like You

Couldn’t help but bawl my eyes out as I felt God dealing with me while I listened to this song. It was the last night of conference and although I had come here with great expectations to encounter God; the pivotal moment for me wasn’t in the presence of other believers singing songs of praise and adoration. It wasn’t in the powerful and timely seminars that were shared and it was neither in the beautiful performances on stage nor in the fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters. For me that experience came long before Commissioning while in the hotel kitchen on the last night, alone; vulnerable before God saying, “Here I am Lord, use me. I wanna be more like you.”

I can’t begin to describe the moment but I had been dwelling on the song since the morning. I heard a friend playing it at sound check and it just stuck. Later that evening, I just felt God tugging on my heart. I walked into the kitchen and shut the door. Laid the phone on the table and as the song played, began praying and as if someone had opened a hydrant; started to bawl. A few minutes later, my best friend walks in and without a word, sits down next to me and begins bawling as well. Continue reading I wanna be more like You

Mid-November Update

Hi everyone,

sorry for being absent from the blogosphere for a while. I now have only one paper left till I’m done with final school term for the year 2011. I can’t wait for it to be over and done with so that I can fully concentrate on raising support for IndyCC. So far the response has been good but I have to follow-up with people. There is still quite a way to go (financially) as each of us going has to raise FD$6000. So if you feel in your heart that you’d like to help please feel free to send a message so that I can forward you details on how you can do so.

I would also like to share that I have been chosen (alongside my good friend Biu – sick blog here) to attend a two week short film making workshop this December in Melbourne, Australia. This will be facilitated by the Global Short Film Network in partnership with Campus Crusade for Christ (Short Film School website).

I’m super excited! Thank you Student Life Fiji for this great opportunity.

The STINTers returned home last Sunday. Yep, back to the states. It’s been a blessing having them in uni. this year. And for me personally, I could say that I have learnt so much… especially form the guys (Dave, Rob and my discipler Brian). I really miss seeing them around the White Tables but I’m looking forward to visiting them in a few weeks time. Brian’s arranged for me to spend Christmas with his family in Cincinnati, Ohio.

But… Continue reading Mid-November Update

Thank you Jesus

And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

It’s the second week of the semester and students here at the University of the South Pacific are finalising their timetables and getting settled into classes.  Today after spending much of the morning designing t-shirts and banners for the Wansolwara[1] (One Ocean – One People), I walk up to the White Tables[2] to meet with Biu[3].
